She asked  that a written note be included  in council minutes which stated; 'T submit that jfpembers  of the Gibson family are being unduly harassed by this  inaccurate reporting and wish  to register a protest." A further similar request concerned  another  note  which  stated   "I  .'''protest ������'''the'''Irresponsible'���'���talk'  that is putting members of the  Gibsons   fainily   publicly   in  a  bad light.!'  Both   requests   were   turned  [. down by council,  Mrs.  Glass-,  " ford then turned her notes over  to the Times for publication.  At an earlier meeUng with  family members, Mrs. Glassford said it had been agreed  the stones should not be moved  nnd certainly not covered over  with cement as they had bcen  led to believe were the inton*  tions of council.

A  Regarding discipline at Elphinstone, Mr. Potler reported  that strict rules were in force  but additional lighting in front >  of the school would be beneficial. Former students were always welcomed at the school  provided they- obtained the  necessary pernVtssion ^from. thfe  office to attend functions.       j  The Board agreed to participate in a group life ihsurancb  plan covering teaching -and  non-teaching staff. Finance and  planning committees would de-"  cide on the extent of participation before approaching the  staff. Mrs. Ball enquired why  the Board had gone to the  trouble of making a survey to  ascertain how other school  boards operate, in this respect,  when the information .could  have been obtained from BC  STA. Mr. Wilson replied that  the BCSTA had been approached but they had no information regarding non-teaching  staff and their knowledge relating to teaching staff wns  three years old. whereas the  information the Board had ob- w  tamed Ivasr'up"to''"<iateV'',''w''"  With reference to the charging���of ^etrs���fOT~1mto^T]pTfren,  Mr. Wilson reported that out  of.69 school boards approached  only 16 offered kindergarten  facilities, six of these charged  fees ranging from $4.00 to $6.00  per month. The Board agreed  that no fee would be charged  kindergarten students in this  area.  Business ended with Mrs.  Peggy Volen proposing a motion that the Board reaffirm  full confidence in, Superintendent Gordon Johnson and Secretary Treasurer Peter Wilson.  The only dissenting vote '.was  recorded by Mrs. Muriel Ball.  Other trustees present were  Mrs. Celia Fisher, Mrs. Leslie  Jackson, Mrs. Peggy Volen and  Mr. Wm. Malcolm.

'  Lord Montgomery used , to  make sure of his first objective before committing his  troops to the 2nd and 3rd, or  else see the enemy off somewhere else.

Perhaps the saddest part of this lack of interest by older  citizens, was the disappointnient of the group of eager  teenage boys who arrived fresh from an afternoons enthusiastic meeting with the area recreational director,  Mr. P. Lawrence. Only one adult, other than the acting  executive attended.   Mr. Lawrence had held a discussion Vmeetirig wiibi the students at Pender Harbour Secondary .School on tbe afternoon  of April 43. One of the points  brought <��yt by the students  was the jiieed for better communication between groups  sponsoring recreational events  on the Peninsula. This will be  rectified by-the formation, now  being planned, of a Central Recreation Committee on the Peninsula to which each local committee will send a representative.  Basically, the students want  some local activities, something to give them someplace  to go and to meet with each  other. They assured Mr. Lawrence that they would be wil-  NEED ACAR?  jyraM^woisEfr  TRY  Peninsula  Motor Prod.  JECHELT, B.C.  2111  - Ted Forewell  ���ling to> work and help in anyway they could to bring this a-  bout  Also mentioned was the lack  of, and the need for, public  beach access and facilities for  local people and tourists. The  students would like to see the  revival of the small boat regatta which was dropped some  years ago.  The young people presented  very graphically and realistically the transportation problems of the harbour area, and  unanimous opinion favored  attempting to promote some facilities for recreation in Madeira  Park as the most central location. Some of the things mentioned, such as a bowling alley, and pool room, are a little  ambitious financially, but not  entirely impossible if interest  and, support, is great enough?  The young people of the community are wilh^g.J_Qw_jibout--  the adults?  The only activity sponsored  by the local committee in the  past three years is the swim  class ; f or -childrenr for"  six  weeks in summer.  If you want more recreation  for adults, for the young people and children of the area,  you must support your local  Recreation Committee, and let  them know what is wanted.  Further,- the committee is not  some vague, miracle producing authority. The committee  is composed-of a directing executive, elected by, and from  among you, to carry out your  wishes���with your support.  First, however, there must  be an active committee. This  last feeble meeting marked the  third failure in the past year,  to have sufficient attendance toI  elect a new executive^  ���   As     the     Committee,    now'  stands,   a   position  is   vacant  since the resignation of the sec-  ;,i5fetary, last JfaU.%Mrs.��H. vWWtt;  taker is acting president (term  expired).    Mr.    EL    Whittaker.  is     acting     treasurer    (term  expired), and Mrs. L. W. Kil-  born is vice-president.  There will be another meeting within the next two weeks.  It is hoped that Mr. .Lawrence  will be present. The incoming  executive will have the benefit of his knowledge and experience, as well as the stimulation and advantage of exchanging ideas with representatives  of the Central Committee.  If the next meeting shows no  greater" interest than the past  three, the present acting executive will be forced to abandon  their attempts to keep the committee alive. The need for recreational activities is here, but  we also need people willing to  tek�� office, ,,a^  support.

It had been hoped that  a number of our residents  would have taken this opportunity of expressing their views  to a member of the Provincial  Cabinet, but this was not the  case. There are always plenty  of complaints to be heard a-  bout the government's apparent  lack of concern for small communities, but when opportunities such as this are available,  those who are most vociferous  in their comments are particularly noticeable by their absence.  Possibly the country store  verandah is still the best place  from which to reach the ears  of government, despite my ideas to the contrary.

In the  meantime, the Doriston joad  ivould be a good beginning. Mr.  Cara,pbeil was delighted with  this unexpected break in the  iour, as were the other members of his party, and wilj, no  doubt, remember Doriston when  discussing the needs of the Sechelt Peninsula with his col-'  leagues in the Cabinet.  '.f The.Anal part of the trip was  a cruise along both shores of  Egmont. and here again the*  story .of the lack of power supply to a portion of our community wasexplained 'tolfie'Minister; the failure of the present  Government to honor the com  ttiitment of the former B.C. Electric Co. to supply power to  all of Egmont, and a request  that he bring the matter of supplying power to our North shore  to the attention of the proper  authorities. Those of our guests  not familiar with our district  were amazed at the extent cf  our community, stretching, as  it does, along both shores, and  at the many homes which are  only visible from the water.  The weather was not of the  best "hnd our usual sunshine  was lacking (the sun came out  just as our visitors were leav-  - ing) but it is to be hoRed lhat  Mr. Campbell will do all in his  ; power to further our local requirements. While non-committal, like most politicians, he  listened attentively to our various spokesmen* was receptive  to and appeared to have a clear  understanding of our wants; We  have brought them to Mr. Campbell's attention and through  him, we trust, to the attention  of the- departments most con-  corned. Time will tell.  'AfWr 'leaving Rgmontl Mr,  Campbell and Mrs! Dawson  made a brief stop at John  Klein's -Ruby Lake Motel'. The  purpose of this visit was to discuss the possibility of slocking  Uuby Lake with trout and to  inspect the pni'ksilo in that area, However, being behind on  their schedule, it was decided  to talk over these subjects nt  a later date when they could  be discussed more thoroughly,  Our thntM and that of our  community, to Mnrk Myers nnd  Gone Berntzen who so unhoslt-  at'ely gave of their time, nnd  to Mr, Berntzen fp'r the use; of  his water.'.'inni, i�� order to make  Mr; Campbell's visit a success.

There will be a Pender Harbour May Day celebration in Madeira Park  again this year. Doubts were entertained on the continuance of these festivities because lack of participation by  adults willing to prgamze^^h  ful workers ready to quit. -���   However, much more interest, and a far greater turnout  of people from all parts of the  harbour has given, new impetus  and enthusiasm to the planning.  Elected chairman of the May  Day Committee is Mr. Bill  Peters of Kleindale, secretary  Mfs. R. Mair, Treasure Mrs.  W." Mills.  Two meetings have been  held, and committees formed  to take charge of arranging the  many details. Committees were  particularly pleased by the  presence of a teenage boy,  Gary McK6nzie, who offered  his, services in erecting booths.  Volunteers will still be needed  to help for an hour each on  May Day.  ART  EXHIBITS  Mrs. Stephanie Hooper has  announced that there will be  two exhibits of the paintings  done by the Pender Harbour  art class.

Though much enjoyed in many  ways, their holiday was exciting, and it could have been  happier. The excitement, they  and their worried friends at  home could have done without!  Sticklands were just nicely  settled, with their home-away-  from-home parked in a trailer  park in Mazatlan, when Mr.  Stickland was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.  After spending three weeks  recuperating in the lovely Mexican sunshine, Mr. Stickland  made the drive home in leisurely stages.  The Sticklands bring home  with them a great affection and  .regard for the Mexican people  who proved to be so warmhearted and concerned for  strangers in distress. They...  were delighted to find that Canadians are truly welcomed in  Mexico. They were proud to  learn that the fine conduct of  Canadian sailors on, shore leave  has won respect for all Canadians.  Friends in the Harbour will  bev pleased to know that both  Mr. and Mrs. Stickland aro  looking very well.

We are writing to say that we  stand.with you strongly in favor of anything that serves to  build in our young people the  strong moral truths of the Bible  and Christianity. These principals we believe to be the true  strengths of the nation.  We are grateful- for the high  moral tone in most of our teachers, and hope that continued  caution as to personal character will be observed in the recognition of teachers. Atheistic  and immoral teachers weaken  the very foundation of righteousness upon which our nation  was built.

In reply, I wish to state that  there is no intention, at the  present time, of changing the  policy with respect to religious  exercises in the public schools.  It is our opinion that such exercises serve a good purpose  in promoting a good moral Vtorie  both for teachers and pupils.  It is possible that changes  will be made in the Bible Readings when a revision commit  tee   has   been   established   for  this purpose.  -May I thank you for your expression of support, and for acquainting me with your views  on the matter.
